Miami Dolphins Defensive End Jared Odrick and His "Stupid" Dance

On Sunday, Miami Dolphins defensive end Jared Odrick sacked Washington Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman.  Immediately after the sack, Odrick commenced to thrash around like a a drunk guy trying to dance.

Or, like Pee-Wee Herman.

That's right.  Odrick did the Pee-Wee Herman "Tequila" dance following his sack.  This is the second time Odrick has broken out the dance, the first following Odrick's sack of Denver Broncos' quarterback Tim Tebow.  But, given the Dolphins' collapse to end the Denver game, this is the first time the dance became a topic of conversation.

"He's embarrassing himself," future Hall of Famer Jason Taylor said.

Linebacker Karlos Dansby described the dance with one word. "Terrible," he said.  Head coach Tony Sparano agreed, calling it "ugly."

Upon hearing of the critical reviews of his moves, Odrick reacted with false exasperation.  "It's unfortunate they can't really support me and my dancing," Odrick said, "but it's something I like and something my family likes, so I'm going to keep doing it.  JT's just mad because he's been here 15 years and doesn't have a theme song yet. My dance isn't terrible. It's fun. It's unique."

The Dolphins seem to be ready to encourage Odrick.  After he conducted his "dance," the public address annoucer began playing "Tequila" through the stadium's speakers.
